Fourth of July Parade


Here’s an anonymous poem I selected especially for Independence Day.

FOURTH OF JULY PARADE

Hear the blare of bugles,
Hear the beat of drums,
Hear the sound of marching feet.
Down the street it comes,

Playing, marching,
Marching, playing,
In the sun and shade,
All the music,
All the color
Of the Fourth’s parade.

See the buglers blowing,
See the drummers pound,
See the feet go up and down
To the music’s sound.
Playing, marching,
Marching, playing,
In the shade and sun,
All the color,
All the music
Says the Fourth’s begun.


Here’s a link to the fireworks acrostic I posted for the Fourth of July in 2007.

At Blue Rose Girls, I’ve posted a poem by New Mexican poet Cynthia Gray entitled High Desert July.

The Poetry Friday Roundup is at In Search of Giants.


Happy Independence Day!!!

We are about to go to the parade right now. It's my favorite part of the holiday. Happy 4th!
